Hit the road for Florida Grand Opera

Naples Opera Society invites opera aficionados to make the trip across the state to see Florida Grand Opera’s production of Guiseppe Verdi’s “Un Ballo in Maschera” (A Masked Ball) on Saturday, May 6.

Naples passengers can climb aboard the coach bus at 1 p.m. at Crossroads Shopping Center (the bus also stops at 11:45 a.m. at the Ace Hardware center in Cape Coral and at 12:30 p.m. at Cypress Trace in south Fort Myers).

The group enjoys an early dinner at a restaurant in Coral Gables before making its way to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts for a 7 p.m. lecture followed by the opera at 8 p.m. All-inclusive cost is $140 for mezzanine and $165 for rear orchestra.

“Un Ballo in Maschera” is about the assassination in 1792 of King Gustav III of Sweden. He was shot while attending a masked ballroom dance and died 13 days later of his wounds. The opera is performed in Italian with English and Spanish projections.
